Well now it appears that mothers everywhere have been right all along in the band-aid debate.
A study at Queensland’s James Cook University used 65 medical students who removed Band-Aids either quickly or slowly, and ranked their pain reaction from zero to 10.
Quick removal returned a pain score of 0.92 in comparison with 1.58 for those who chose the slow approach.
Researcher Dr Carl O’Kane says the research found the cause of pain to be more of a psychological issue.
Now that we got that out of the way, how about we find a cure for Cancer or AIDS? Would that be too much trouble? Good God people. I mean we have more people spending on time building seedless orange fields than we do trying to cure the world’s deadliest diseases.
What the hell is going on here? Yay! I now know more about Band-Aids? Man this is pathetic.
